    I'm looking forward to both of these classes, except I work Monday thru Friday on the West Coast so I can't make these times.
    I'll keep my eyes peeled for other class times.

    To confirm this is for fixed wing like the f16 and not the gunships like an apache, correct? If that is the case I would like to attend the course, I have already completed ground school. Unfortunately I have an SP at the start of the following hour, but maybe I can work something out.

    Being dumb can actually be an asset. With credentials like that you'll be an SL in no time.

    If I am ever handed a leadership role, ready the brig. I'll lead my (wo)men into certain death only, such is my luck.

    I may be 15 min late. Will that be too late for me to attend the class?
